I love to travel all over the globe shopping for textiles to add to my wearable art. I have taught quilting to school children in Nepal, seminole patchwork to seamstresses in Thailand, and jackets and embellishment to quilters in Turkey where I also served as a judge at 2 of their International Quilt Shows. I have created garments for 5 Fairfield and Bernina Fashion Shows and teach classes on embellishment and wearable art. Lately I have been leaning more toward making art quilts.

Trip to India and Nepal, Jan-Feb 2011

Our trip to India and Nepal began in rather a relaxed mood. We had lots of time between flights so Barbara found a quiet spot to read in the Detroit Airport.
And there was a similar spot in the spanking new Airport in Delhi waiting for the flight to Kathmandu after an overnight stay in town.

In Nepal we spent five nights at the Ganesh Himal Hotel, a fabulous place in Chetrapati, a section of the old area. The terrace outside our rooms. There were two things wrong with the hotel, no elevator (most hotels didn't have them...not a good idea in a city with no electricity for half the day...they use generators)...and it was two long blocks from the good restaurant and shopping areas . But it had extremely comfortable rooms, friendly staff, free internet, great restaurant and room service and when Barb got sick they personally took her to the ER and the owner of the hotel went and picked her up. I can't recommend them highly enough.

Chetrapati Tole just up the road from the hotel. A major crossroads.

Just found your photos, Priscilla. Will enjoy following as you post more. I have a short trip to India in September and this is a great reminder of the region.
